Mexican Lasagna

I made this the other night and it was delicious! The recipe and photo is from Kraftfoods.com, but I omitted the brand names they recommended because I don't think it matters. I used storebrand cheeses and it was great!
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
2-1/2 cups mild salsa
1 can (11 oz.) whole kernel corn, drained
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
12 corn tortillas (6 inch), divided
1 container (16 oz.) cottage cheese
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 can (2-1/4 oz.) sliced pitted ripe olives, drained

PREHEAT oven to 375°F. Brown meat in large skillet on medium heat; drain. Return meat to skillet. Add onions and peppers; cook until crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Add salsa, corn and seasonings; mix well.

LAYER one third of the meat mixture and one half each of the tortillas and cottage cheese in 13x9-inch baking dish. Repeat layers; cover with remaining meat sauce. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese and olives.

BAKE 30 min. or until heated through.
